QT Data Explorer
Export Layer Tree to KMZ
QT Modeler’s Multi Directional Hillshade enables the activating and setting of, three additional lighting sources to the main directional lighting. This allows for a fuller shading component to the visualization of your surface model data.
Annotation Upgrades – Make Your Own Stencils
Stencils can now remember and honor color values, and you can create your own! Simply right click on any vector, Export > Save as Stencil. Then select that stencil whenever you need it in the future. This will make it much faster to create and reuse common vectors such as multi-color range rings.
Helicopter Landing Zone (HLZ)
Terrain-X, the tool that is used to mark local slopes and headings (very useful in annotating an HLZ), has gotten a cosmetic refresh. The lines and arrowheads are thicker, labels have caption offsets, and the primary arrow now will always point “downslope”.
Model Search now has a few more search parameters and capabilities:
- Inverse search (everything *outside* search area)
- Search Quadrants (search NE, SE, SW, or NW quadrants individually if desired)
- Added context menu option to remove items from list
